Meteorologist Carrie Cheevers actually loves lake effect

Well, we’ve endured the first lake effect snowfall of the year. A few inches blanketed lawns and landscapes from Oswego to Ithaca after flakes began falling at noon Friday, Nov. 14, and continued on and off for a couple days. The unusual mid-day squall was offset by intermittent appearances of blue skies and sunshine, as though Mother Nature couldn’t quite make up her mind.

LETTER: Cicero budget a disappointment

An open letter to the residents of the village of Fayetteville

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Our elected trustees are all fond of saying how much they value the “quality of life” in the village of Fayetteville and how hard they fight to ensure that the “quality of life” here is safeguarded. For the most part, I doubt that this motivation can be questioned. However, there are times when the policies they enact and defend defy both common sense and the “quality of life” that they so desperately want to defend. One such example of a misguided policy is their support of Richard Green’s revival of an old law that interferes with a resident’s right to contract for snow removal services.
